The Lyrics

Four, five

Can't wake up
I stayed up too late last night
Beer 14, I should've turned out the light
So messed up, I think I'm losing my sight

Partied down, until I couldn't get up
I passed out, alarm is waking me up
Hold it down, still have the urge to throw up

But when my job is calling
I cannot move my legs, legs
Can't even think of eating
These eggs

I've got to go off to work
No, don't go
I've got to go in to work
Call in sick
My boss will think I'm a jerk
No, he won't
I know it doesn't seem fair
Stay at home
They only pay when I'm there

I'm coming in, baby
Give it to me now

Six a.m. I had a shower and shave
Still asleep, but gotta dress anyway
One more step, I'll make it through the doorway

But when my bed is calling
I just can't come alive, live
I know I'll never make it
Till five

I've got to go off to work
Use your head
I've got to go in to work
Back to bed
My boss will think I'm a jerk
He's one, too
I know it doesn't seem fair
Think this through
They only pay when I'm there

My big fat boss, can sort things out
I'm calling in, I'm dropping out
I need some sleep, turn off the phone
Leave me alone

I'm gonna stay home from work
Get some sleep
I'm gonna take off from work
Watch TV
My boss will think I'm a jerk
He will live
I know it doesn't seem fair
God forgives
But what have I got to lose
You'll get by
I've got a sick day to use

Go, slow
Get high, lay low
I know it doesn't seem fair
They only pay when I'm there (don't go in)
But I'm not leavin' this chair

Back to bed and not returning
Sleeping while the world is burning
Afternoon and slowly rising
See what they are televising

Videos with Bieb and Britney
Learning Channel, Eli Whitney
Drink some beer, and maybe whiskey
Better not, that's mighty risky

Stay at home
Work can wait
Don't go in
Stay at home
